Three different variants of Verizon’s Motorola Droid Turbo were available until now, but that number has now increased to four, with the addition of a sapphire blue ballistic nylon variant to the league. This new device can be purchased right now for the same price at which the black colored ballistic nylon version has been selling – $599.99 (off-contract).
That asking amount decreases to $199.99 if a two-year contract is signed with Verizon. These costs apply to the 32GB variants of the Motorola Droid Turbo, while the 64GB versions are being made available at $249.99 on-contract and at $649.99 off-contract.
This smartphone may be a Verizon-exclusive in the US, but it has been released with different brandings in other parts of the world. It’s called the Moto Maxx in Latin America, while it’s being sold as the Moto Turbo in India.
The main highlight of this Motorola device is its large 3900mAh battery which is claimed to offer 48 hours of usage time. That’s not all; the Turbo Charging functionality of this power pack enables it to get eight hours of juice in just 15 minutes. Plus, this phone also grabs a 2K display, a 21MP rear camera and all of the company’s neat software features that we’ve seen on the Moto X (2014).
